[I’m CEO of Zooomr]
Well I was really pleased this morning when I saw on my Zooomr Zipline a note from Kristopher that Pownce had integrated Zooomr thumbnails into their service. I’ve been using Pownce pretty early on since they launched and it has completely become my Twitter alternative.
Adding the ability for me to post my Zooomr thumbnails in my Pownce stream makes it that much sweeter of a service for me.
A lot of people have asked me why I like Pownce over Twitter. There are two reasons really.
The first reason is the file sharing. I LOVE this feature more than any other on Pownce. The ability to share an mp3 music file with a friend (I don’t consider sharing an mp3 with a friend stealing and look at this as more fair use in the same way that I used to make audio mix tapes for my friends back in the day) is a truly great feature.
The second reason is that Pownce just feels more like a conversation to me. I’m not sure exactly why this is and can’t pinpoint it exactly, but I feel like things get drowned out in Twitter whereas with Pownce it feels easier to follow the back and forth of conversations.
I still use Twitter, but more as a place to broadcast things one way than anything.
Pownce also has added video embedding into their service as well. You can check out the whole announcement here. Oh and if you are on Pownce feel free to add me here. I’ve also got 11 invites to hand out if anyone needs them. First come, first served. Just shoot me a fanmail note on Zooomr with your email address and I’ll invite you.
Anyways, a very cool addition to Pownce. Thanks Daniel and Leah and team!
